If you have an installation CD for your scanner which is WIN 2000 compatible, you can install it on WIN XP by doing the following:
1. Start Regedit HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\Current Version
rename the key "ProduktName"
from "Microsoft Windows XP"
in "Microsof Windows 2000"

3. install the driver for Windows 2000

4. Undo the changes in the Registry.

Restart and follow the add new hardware wizard, BUT do NOT let him search for your CD or other data cariers. This results in a search for files that are already installed, but apparently can't be found.

This should work for most scanners with WIN 2000 setup.
